This Pond has its own uniqueness in terms of its rich biodiversity, nevertheless this pond is being continuously dumped by wastewater from approximately 1500 people in the nearby vicinity. This project was started in 2019 by government funding and due to unexpected disturbances this project was on halt, then Hyundai motor company came up for funding the project forward and made a firm determination to complete the project, so by this way this project is on its wheels from again january 2022. The entire water body will first be dewatered of the polluted water, desilted to remove the deposited layers of polluted silt, with the simultaneous construction of a decentralised 200 KLD Root Zone system that will be placed at the inlet to the pond. So that before the water reached the pond again, the wastewater would be treated through the decentralised treatment system. In parallel to this community mobilisation activities are also on an active pace in Hariahara.
Apart from this the pond will pave a way for a recreational area for the community with the added element of Landscaping and kids play area. Waste elements will be used for the landscaping like waste stone and bricks for the filling inside the entrance gate frame, and seatings etc and many more.
The pond will recharge 18,141 kilo litres of freshwater per year, which is sufficient for 1,849 + people for 365 days apart for many other co-benefits.
